Wingman Brewers Joins the Craft Can Revolution and Opens New Taproom

May 14th, 2012 · 1 Comment · Beer Releases, Washington Breweries

Wingman Brewers, located in Tacoma, will become the next Washington brewery to join in the ever-expanding lineup of craft breweries putting their beer in cans for retail distribution. They hope to have their P-51 Porter and Ace IPA in 16oz tallboy cans later this month if all goes as planned.

They also moved to their new taproom location back in April, and they are now open 2-11pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

More info from their newsletter:

A big thank you to everyone who made it to the grand opening of our taproom. For those who haven’t made it in yet, we are open 2–11pm every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. We always have our beers on tap for pint or growler fills, and try to keep a homemade non-alcoholic option on tap as well (check out our Facebook and Google+ pages for the weekly selection). The taproom is located at our new location a block away from many take-out options at Freighthouse Square, and we welcome you to bring in your favorite food to enjoy with our beer. We also are partnering with some local food trucks, and Barrel 51 BBQ will be here for the next few weekends!

Wingman in a Can
If all goes well, we get to can our beers next week. Cross your fingers that the equipment arrives, and perhaps you will be able to find P-51 Porter and Ace IPA in cans later this month. Watch our Facebook and Twitter feeds for updates on where to get Wingman cans throughout the Tacoma and Seattle area.
